Computing Science

Computing Science is a relatively young academic discipline. The field of study is expanding rapidly and is fuelled by steady developments in both hardware and software. Introductory computing science courses focus on algorithms, problem-solving, programming, and the organization and design of computers.

Students are required to use computers extensively in most courses. Mathematics and problem-solving skills are valuable assets.

A variety of computing courses are available in both the Computing Science and Computer Information Systems (CIS) program areas. Computing courses can be used to fulfill various requirements in the Associate of Science, Bachelor of Science, and Bachelor of Computer Information Systems programs, and are listed in those sections of the calendar.

Students wishing to transfer to computing programs at other universities or institutes should consult that university’s calendar, the transfer guide, and/or consult with a Student Services educational advisor or the department. Students interested in taking several computing science courses should start with COMP 125 and COMP 150.
